What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Playing without Kawhi Leonard, Russell Westbrook pointed the finger at himself for Clippers’ surprising loss to Orlando at home: ‘This one’s on me’…7:40 PM
Janis Carr @janiscarr
Westbrook took ownership of the Clippers’ loss:
“This one’s on me honestly tonight. I could have been better. Started off good, but just in the second half, was terrible. I got to do a better job of helping the guys out in the second half and the fourth quarter.” – 7:33 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Kyle Lowry is inactive for the Heat tonight, as are Cody Zeller, Jamal Cain, Orlando Robinson and Nikola Jovic, with the latter three in the G League. – 7:31 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers are 5-5 in matinee games this season after today’s loss.
As of right now, their only two matinee games left are the Holy Weekend back-to-back to end season: home finale vs Blazers, Easter Sunday at Phoenix.
There’s a good chance Phoenix game will be changed though. – 7:30 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
When Terance Mann hit Mason Plumlee for a layup with 7:46 to go, LA led Magic 90-86.
Magic sprinted on 9-1 go-ahead run, and LA never led after that.
3:38 Clippers FG drought with Mann, Plumlee, PG, Westbrook, Covington, Batum, Morris, Gordon, Zubac all in at some point. – 7:01 PM

Lakers status report for tomorrow’s game against the Magic: PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Obviously a team’s ceiling is dictated by their best 2 players being available. But Clippers of past used to, you know, win games without their stars.
This year’s team started off ok without Kawhi. Won 7 of first 12 without Kawhi, all with PG carrying them.
Brutal ever since. – 6:53 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
The LA Clippers have lost 14 of their last 17 games without Kawhi Leonard, including 7 straight.
Here are the 3 wins without Kawhi since November 15.
Clippers have two more back-to-backs this season. PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers made only 2/12 3s after halftime today vs Magic.
Westbrook on that: “That’s more on me. My job is to be able to penetrate and get guys open shots, and get them open 3s, and I didn’t do a good enough job of that. Make sure I’ll be better at that tomorrow.” – 6:48 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Russell Westbrook on today’s game: “this one’s on me honestly tonight. I could have been better. Started off good. But just in the second half, was terrible. And I got to do a better job of helping the guys out in the second half and the fourth quarter.” – 6:48 PM

Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Markelle Fultz today:
28 points (career-high)
6 rebounds
4 assists
4 steals
And a huge sequence in the Magic win over the Clippers: Wendell Carter blocked Russell Westbrook at the rim leading to a Fultz transition finish. Awesome to watch Fultz. PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
That was worst 4th quarter of season by Clippers.
They were outscored by 15 in 4th in New York, but it would have been 18 if Nico Batum didn’t force OT, where Clippers won.
Markelle Fultz and Wendell Carter Jr. outplayed Ivica Zubac and Russell Westbrook down to the end. – 5:39 PM
New career-high for Markelle Fultz.
He has 53 points in his last 2 games. That is the most over a 2-game span in his career 💪 PM

Dan Savage @Dan_Savage
Markelle Fultz with a career-high 28 points tonight, but perhaps none bigger than these two. PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Been great to see Fultz put this type of season together. Followed him closely that year at UW since the Suns had a shot at him. Got to see him in Tempe/Tucson (…) and it was clear how mega talented he was. Orlando seems like a great fit for him. – 5:35 PM

Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
first DNP-CD of the year for Moritz Wagner today. Bench was predictably unproductive without him (Cole Anthony had 18 of its 20 points) but Goga Bitadze offered better defense. Curious to see how Mosley allocates the backup 5 mins going forward – 5:33 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
Some good news on the draft front (finally): Clippers fall at home to the Magic. The LAC pick is currently #19, but this narrows the gap a little bit. Atlanta, GSW and Dallas are all one game back of LAC in the loss column. – 5:33 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Today was 2nd game of season with Wendell Carter Jr. making 10+ field goals and having 10+ rebounds. The previous instance was a week ago vs Heat.
It was his season-high (career-high tying) 4 3s that really hurt Clippers today.
When WCJ makes as many 2nd half 3s as your team… – 5:33 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
I asked Terrence Ross about Markelle Fultz the other day. He said Fultz’s attributes combined with how he moves on the court and sees it is unlike anyone he’s ever played with. Said Fultz plays with a lot of heart and that it’s good to see him coming into his own. – 5:31 PM

4-game LA Clippers win streak is snapped, as they dropped 2nd game of the season to Magic.
Magic outscored Clippers 39-26 in 4th quarter, win 113-108. Clippers have now lost 7 straight with Kawhi Leonard out the lineup.
Wendell Carter Jr., Markelle Fultz with 12 each in 4th. – 5:28 PM

oh dear. Franz Wagner extends the late Magic lead to 5 for in LA. PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Franz Wagner has struggled from 3 all day, missing five of his first six attempts, only to drill a triple with 40.7 seconds left to push Orlando back up five. – 5:23 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Franz Wagner with a stepback 3 over Robert Convington to give the Magic a 109-104 lead with 40.7 seconds remaining. – 5:23 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Paul George got back-to-back buckets, including only LA’s 2nd 3 of the 2nd half
But then Franz Wagner hits dagger 3, only his 2nd of the game in 7 attempts.
3-point shooting after half has been a big difference. Magic up 109-104, only 40.7 left and no timeouts for LA. – 5:23 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Markelle Fultz and Wendell Carter Jr. have been fantastic for the Magic, especially in the 4Q. – 5:22 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Wendell Carter Jr. has absolutely killed the Clippers today. He has 27 points, 12 rebounds and 3 steals. He’s buried 4 3-pointers. Clippers down 5 with 1:49 left. – 5:19 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Wendell Carter Jr. is dominating his matchup with Zu today.
27 points, 11/19 FGs, 4/8 3s. 12 4th quarter points.

Khobi Price @khobi_price
Cole Anthony (18 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists) has all of the Magic’s bench points.
He’s had a great start to this 4Q to help keep Orlando in this one. – 5:06 PM

Cole Anthony has all of the @OrlandoMagic’s bench points thus far with 18 of them.
Clippers 88, Magic 84 with 8:45 left in the 4th. – 5:04 PM

Magic call timeout after a Robert Covington drive ends a choppy start to quarter for both teams.
LA lead is down to 88-82 with 9:24 left. Clippers have missed 7 of 8 3s after halftime. They hit some of those, and they might get some extra rest before Portland. – 5:02 PM

Games like today, and PG’s struggles, are a reminder of how Magic swept Celtics 4-0 this season.
They know how to play against star wings. – 4:25 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This game pretty much comes down to Paul George figuring out Jamahl Mosley’s defense. PG has only 3 paint attempts in 50 minutes vs Magic this season, including only one today (a made finger roll) – 4:24 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Russell Westbrook was the only Clipper with multiple assists in first half. He had 5, with 3 turnovers.
Rest of Clippers had 6 assists, with 8 turnovers (6 by PG) – 4:23 PM

Magic made their first 4 3s.
They missed 8 of their last 9 3s. – 4:21 PM

This game is a toss up. As raggedy as LA was, they did win possession battle. Magic had even more turnovers (12) than Clippers did, and LA won off. rebound battle 8-3.
Magic struggled mightily with Franz Wagner off floor. But not as much as LA struggled with RoCo off floor. – 4:19 PM

It’s been a really bad Paul George game so far. 3/7 FGs, 1/3 3s, no free throw attempts. But the worst part: 5 turnovers already, and all of them Magic steals.

When Jamahl Mosley was the Mavericks defensive coordinator, he saw the Clippers in back-to-back postseasons. Magic have been competitive with Clippers in all 3 meetings in part due to their defense, which emphasizes prohibiting paint (but allows plenty of 3s).
Mosley on defense: PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
The Magic locked up Kawhi Leonard and Paul George after the 1st quarter in Orlando, holding the two to 2/15 FGs in quarters 2-OT and 1/12 midrange overall.
But Russell Westbrook’s play in Sacramento with PG was encouraging for today’s offense.
Here’s Tyronn Lue on LA w/o Kawhi. PM

Some matchup rankings headed into Magic at LA for Saturday morning.
Last time the Clippers saw the Magic, Orlando came back from an 18-point deficit to win in OT. LA has lost 13 of their last 16 games without Kawhi Leonard. It’s Ivica Zubac’s birthday, so maybe he has a 30-30? PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Clippers/Magic on tap today at noon PT. Clippers looking for 5th straight win with Kawhi Leonard resting and Norm (shoulder) is still out. I’m also out today, but @BA_Turner is taking my spot in the rotation. I’ll be back with updates tomorrow in Portland. – 11:56 AM
